New Little Art Journal

Ahhh, I love this little journal! It was SO very tempting to fill it up with ink and images and fabric and charms. Alas, I’ve let it go, blank and ready to journal in, to Etsy where it’s for sale. Not pushing sales here, mind you; that’s for Etsy!! Just thought you might want to see the little treasure!

I hope everyone has their new year off to a lovely start. It’s good here. I am loved. Creativity abounds. My children are so sweet to me. They are my heart!! And the true love that I wish I’d found when I was 20, my sweet Jason, he takes wonderful care of my heart and mind and spirit. We are so happy. I was sad and taken advantage of for a long time, but I am so thankful that I found my friend, my person, my everything, in my lifetime.

Enjoy this day! xxLynn

Completed December Daily journal!

Oh my goodness, it’s complete! On December 31st, I finished a month-long project to journal every day in a journal that I created especially for December 2018.

Many journal-keepers on YouTube do what is called a “December daily” where they journal and/or video daily. I did not quite get a video uploaded every day. Many days I did, but work and life got in the way some days.

That said, I thought you might enjoy seeing the video of this huge, beautiful, work-of-art journal. I have LOVED working in this!

I wish all of you a very wonderful, HAPPY 2019, full of prosperity and love and hope, and all that good stuff!!

Enjoy this day! xxLynn

Ringing in the New Year!!

Here we stand on the edge of 2019. How exciting to have a clean slate, so to speak. I have purposed to just try to be a better person, rather than make a laundry list of things I am going to change. Would I like to suddenly become someone who puts nothing but nutrient-packed foods in her mouth? Someone who walks 10 miles to start the day? Why, yes, I think, as I stare across the table at an empty bowl with traces of whipped cream and strawberry-rhubarb pie.

I cannot believe, actually, that I am here at age 55, still wanting to change so many things, still running after goals, still loving every little step of this life we have the privilege to live.

I plan to do some things to streamline my ephemera / journal business in 2019. You will see more here about the business and what I have under way in the studio and for sale in the shop.

I know I talked about having a job I love! It is so true! Some have asked about it. I have left medical / clerical!! Finally. I did my time. I have taken my retirement and I am now working on things that are more creative! I work in a reuse center, building displays, making journal items to promote sales, learning about outreach, and I plan to teach classes on how to make journals. The other thing I am doing is building my business here from home. I LOVE it!!

Here is wishing everyone a wonderful, purpose-filled, prosperous 2019!!

Enjoy this day! ~Lynn
